Atelier Areti is a design studio established by sisters Gwendolyn & Guillane Kerschbaumer. The duo grew up in Innsbruck, Austria where their mother surrounded them with a diverse and eclectic collection of objects that drew them both to a career in design.
Following their studies, both sisters working in Interior Design and Architecture which gave them a deep understanding of lighting can inform and interact with its environment.
In 2008 they launched their first collection under the name Atelier Areti, 'Areti' is the Greek word for excellence. Their designs are striking in their geometric simplicity. Simple triangles, circles and lines are recurring motifs in their designs such as the Row Pendant and Two Spheres Light. The sisters also draw inspiration from nature as seen in pieces such as their Mimosa suspension light.
There is a classicism to their work that is explained by their desire to create products with longevity and enduring appeal. This durability is reinforced by their production methods,
